What Is A Goldendoodle?

A goldendoodle is a small mixed breed dog with short legs and long body. They are very friendly dogs, but they have strong instincts. Their coat is silky soft and their eyes are bright blue. They love to play fetch and jump around happily when they see other dogs playing. They enjoy being petted, cuddled, and loved on all day long!

The name “golden” comes from the color of their fur.

Goldendoodles Are Good With Children And Other Dogs

They are good with children and other dogs because they like to play with them. You can easily get a child or another dog to do anything you want them too, if you just make sure that it’s fun for both parties. Goldendoodles are also good at doing tricks, which makes them great companions for kids.

A Few Notes On Training

Your puppy is going to have a lot of energy and he’s going to need an outlet for all that energy. If you don’t allow him to get it out, he may get into trouble, chew up your furniture, or even hurt himself. Make sure that you have several toys around for your pup to enjoy.

You can make these yourself, or you can buy some at a pet store. Just make sure that they’re sturdy and can stand up to your energetic young puppy. Also, don’t forget to give him lots of praise when he plays with his toys.

You should try and spend some one-on-one time with your pup each day. Go for a walk, play ball in the yard, wrestle around on the floor, or do whatever else you can think of. Not only is this good bonding for you two, it also gives him time to get the energy out that he’s going to build up.

If you’re really feeling energetic, you can even go running with your dog. This will help him burn off his youthful exuberance. Just remember to pace yourself.

When your goldendoodle puppy is awake, he’s going to have a lot of energy. As such, it is up to you, the owner, to make sure that all of this energy is expended in a positive way. If you don’t provide an outlet for this energy, then your pup may very well find his own ways of expending it.

This can lead to destructive behavior and will make training much harder in the future.

Obedience Training

Obedience training is a great way to help your dog learn how to act in public and become the well-behaved dog you know he can be. While some people think this is unnecessary, it can really help if your dog is well behaved in public. If your dog is well-behaved in public, people will have more pleasant experiences around him and will not be afraid.

This will allow your dog to adapt better in new environments.

The doodle is very intelligent and can be trained easily if you are consistent and reliable in your reward system. Like a child, the doodle will push boundaries and test you so it is important to be strong willed and consistent. When first training your doodle puppy it is best to keep sessions short but frequent.

This will help them concentrate and learn better.

When it comes to teaching your doodle specific commands there are many ways you can do this. One of the most simple and effective is the use of verbal cues and hand gestures. Verbal cues are easy for the dog to associate a command with and allows for quieter situations where the noise from a clicker can be distracting or louder situations where a whistle would be pointless.

Hand gestures are more obvious to the dog so they can clearly see what you want them to do. This establishes clear boundaries for the dog and allows it to understand your commands easily.

Before beginning any training with your dog, it is best to establish yourself as pack leader. This will help them better understand what you want them to do. You can do this through certain exercises like grabbing their food bowl until they comply or stopping them from going past you.

By establishing yourself as pack leader, the dog will understand that you are in charge and will be more likely to comply with your commands and allow you to train them.

One of the best things you can do while training your dog is keep sessions short but frequent. This allows the dog to learn what is expected of them but also keeps them interested in training. If you push too much information at the dog in one go, it can become overwhelmed and begin to tune out commands or even resist commands out of frustration.

It is important to remember that while training the dog, you are also training yourself. You will have to establish a routine and consistent method of training your dog if you want them to be successful. By being consistent and persistent, you can easily train your dog to be well-behaved member of the family.


It’s important that you keep yourself in shape because your doodle is going to definitely keep you active. You also need to keep your doodle in shape because if it’s too tired to run around and play then it’s going to make a lot of noise and be frustrating for you to handle.


One of the best ways to keep in shape is to go jogging with your dog. Not only will you burn off energy but your doodle will get a lot of exercise which will decrease the amount of noise they make when they are let out to play.

While jogging with your dog, it is important that you don’t push it too hard. Keep at a pace where the dog is just turning purple but not making a lot of noise because of heavy breathing. If you start to pass out or feel light-headed then you need to stop and let your dog take the lead.


Doodles are actually very good swimmers and this is a great way to let them expend energy and have fun.
